As many in business are already aware, cyber crime is a growing threat in South Africa. As the world turns increasingly to digital communication and online commerce, so the opportunities for criminals seeking to exploit any weaknesses multiply. Government departments are equally vulnerable. Recent cyber security breaches at government level have reached right up to the President’s office and led to the theft of billions of rand by criminal syndicates.
LexisNexis CyberCon Africa 2012 is a two-day conference that gathers the leading experts in the field of cyber crime investigation together to assist and advise you on how to avoid becoming a victim of increasingly sophisticated cyber crime organisations. Our presenters will apply knowledge gathered from the front lines of the cyber crime war to show you how to monitor and detect abuse, particularly from individuals inside your operation. This is information that every business leader and his team needs.
This two-day event will be presented by internationally and nationally recognised leaders and specialist practitioners, knowledgeable in combating new cyber security compromise challenges and sophisticated threats to computer networks, systems and cyber security. Delegates will receive a unique perspective on the global fight against cyber crime and the technological challenges of cyber crime. Delegates will also receive training on how to combat these very real threats, thereby increasing your effectiveness in the areas of cyber security and cyber crime investigation.
The knowledge imparted will be of a practical nature. The hands-on nature of the presentations will move the conference out of the realm of the mundane lecture by placing workable, invaluable tools and techniques in the hands of delegates. The conference will feature a global overview of cyber criminal activity but will primarily focus on cyber crime issues that have seriously affected the South African economy in both government and the private sector.
The successful investigation and prosecution of cyber criminals requires specialised knowledge of the latest investigative techniques and methodologies. This knowledge will be shared with all who attend CyberCon Africa 2012.
